I would like a recycle bin icon that is metalic silver and with the recycle icon blue or green. As for the folders, I'm used to the yellow from the Windows UI. The brown one is good too!

I don't want to get too close to the Microsoft icon for fear of disputes.

I personally don't think that should go in the main release. I'm trying to find a happy medium.

How would a half-open file folder cause a dispute? You can't copyright a widely used technology if many other companies use it and you only did it for an icon. Can't copyright the recycle bin either. What disputes do you mean?

Hi all,
I have finally taken a look at the files shunesburg has created or borrowed. I have added the color from his/her's. Please vote on whether this should be the color...

or this color.

Or just suggest a color that will satisfy everyone, because I don't know which one to use.
Thanks,
